FYI Max, you can find the Neuralink Monkey video here: https://youtu.be/rsCul1sp4hQ.

11:34:04	 From  Max Maxfield : Can you hear me?
11:35:18	 From  Max Maxfield : I can hear you
11:35:23	 From  Jacob Beningo : No we can’t hear you
11:35:33	 From  Jacob Beningo : Can you check under mute, to see if your microphone is selected?
11:35:38	 From  Jacob Beningo : I know mine changes sometimes when I log in
11:42:46	 From  Rob Meades : I notice you didn't mention the Neuralink monkey in your list of amazing things - Neuralink could short circuit quite a lot of the technologies listed (video etc.).
11:44:44	 From  James A. Langbridge : Hope to see you next year Max, but in the mean time, I think that you are going to be writing scripts for Black Mirror… Technology is great, and our use of it can be terrifying
11:45:21	 From  Nathan Jones : Clive: You mentioned having never written a program for an RTOS. I'm also a fan of superloops and cooperative schedulers! Not exclusively, but I think they're more useful than people give them credit for. I would imagine you've had some pushback from clients about not using an RTOS. What do you typically respond with?
11:45:52	 From  Michael Kirkhart : LOL - death of the 8 bit microprocessor!
11:46:44	 From  Raul Pando : Would it be like that with brain to machine interfaces, 80% having this augmentation. Uhm...
11:46:58	 From  James A. Langbridge : Have you been to WallMart? I think that 80% of strange trends seem to start with their clients. Everyone was laughing at face mask and full face masks, and now it is common place
11:47:27	 From  James Kincell : Smart watches are a good example! Back when they were new, you looked a bit odd if you had one (admittedly they were big!), now, its common to see. In fact, yes, I feel I am missing out on the data I could have if I had a smart watch!
11:47:59	 From  Rob Meades : Or using mobile phones, which used to be embarrassing or a social faux pas.
11:48:30	 From  James A. Langbridge : I worked on a project with Fujitsu, a headset that shows service guides on the side or your peripheral vision, and can help point out the pieces that you need to check on or replace. Early tech, it wasn't fluid, but it's coming!
11:48:34	 From  Michael Kirkhart : https://www.peopleofwalmart.com/
11:48:35	 From  Steve Wheeler : Or translation of street signage.
11:50:19	 From  Leopy : I'm personally getting a perception that tech is going more and more often towards the route of "solution in search of a problem", such as "life hacks" that save literally seconds but are often very expensive. What do you think?
11:50:27	 From  Nathan Jones : Thanks!
11:53:00	 From  James A. Langbridge : Okay Max, I'm in tears every time I watch your videos!
11:53:29	 From  Andrei : What is your feel about tech progress (especially in consumer industry) vs security (i.e. taking the time to really sanitizing products against trivial attackers)?
11:53:59	 From  Sam : LOVED your history lesson! We constantly repeat history and many are not aware of it.
11:55:21	 From  kehlert : I thought the first Terminator movie was ahead of its time when I saw it years ago, but I found it believable, even back then. What's your take?
11:55:55	 From  Clayton Pannell : Do you have the Victorian LEDs at hand to show off?
11:55:56	 From  Sam : Believeable. Today, nothing shocks me.
11:56:15	 From  Steve Wheeler : I broke out laughing in the theater because I recognized the Terminator code as being from Nybble magazine for an Apple II.
11:56:39	 From  Michael Kirkhart : There does seem to be a trend toward "solutions in search of problems".
11:56:58	 From  James Kincell : Question:

In the past, the technical challenges were easy, but resources limited (ie. books, no internet), while now, we have so many resources, but the technical challenges are so complex.

Do we have it easy compared to the past inventors and engineers, or harder??
11:58:26	 From  Sam : The future in technology is both interesting, yet scary. What will the bad guy use it for?
11:59:52	 From  Davy Baker : Rumba, bring me some bacon.
11:59:53	 From  Michael Kirkhart : Yes - a device which solves the "senioritis" problem!
11:59:53	 From  James A. Langbridge : I can't reinstall my wife :(
11:59:54	 From  Sam : The thing is, I feel the more we use AI, the dumber we make ourselves and not use our brain.
12:00:02	 From  Keith J : Thanks Max!
12:00:10	 From  James G : thank you max!
12:00:13	 From  Davy Baker : Thank you Max.
12:00:17	 From  Rob Meades : Thanks!
12:00:20	 From  Sam : thank you.
12:00:36	 From  Werner : Thanks Max!!
12:00:41	 From  Leopy : Thank you so much!
12:01:21	 From  James A. Langbridge : I notice that Jacob was true to his word, he has a nice shirt on too :) (LinkedIn comments)
12:01:41	 From  Alvaro Muro(Bilbao) : Thanks!!
12:02:04	 From  Agnes B : Thank you very much
